Yes, it's real blood. They are 18 gauge needles. If you look closely they go in out and then in and out again. She giggled through most of it.

I see it as art but it's a dangerous kind of art to do with skin infection and nerve damage a real possibility, even if antiseptic and sterile needles are used.  Sure there are people who enjoy self harm but that doesn't mean it's harmless.  

I know that all the bdsm practitioners will say I'm wrong and I don't understand the rush, but I do understand completely.  As I said at the top, I can view this as interesting art but I also see the person and know this doesn't come from a place of self-love or confidence. It comes from a need to feel because there's something broken that can't be described in any other way than inflicting pain.

You're not a medical professional. And making up medical risks on the internet is a large part of what makes it drivel.

Your emotional ractions to this work are all valid. But your justifications are BS. Try just living with your emotions for what they are.

No, in fact the new DSM V says you are not crazy.

Yes and no. For people like her, Mitsu ([link]) and myself that sharp sting hurts so good. Then there is the endorphin high/rush (i.e. subspace), the feeling of the trickles of blood running down my/her skin after they are removed, and the sting of rubbing alcohol being sprayed on afterwards.

Sorry, I got a little carried away but yes, her smile in the photo after this one and the blissed out look on Mitsu's face are completely real and not acting.

Well she (karamilk) isn't very active even on fetlife (kind of like facebook/deviantart but for naughty, kinky people) but Mitsu is and I have had several conversations with Mitsu. Remember, in the world of BDSM/fetish the line between pain and pleasure can be very thin even though needle play/play piercing isn't that common even on fetlife as it is usually a love it or hate it thing (and you may have noticed, there are only like 4-6 different models in his needles and blood gallery while there are tons in his rope bondage,). It is definitely a different and unique feeling compared to say, flogging or caning.

Note that I had nothing to do with any of the photos, I'm just a fan of a good play piercing scene/session even though I haven't found anyone yet to do any kind of artistic stuff with them yet.

While normally this sort of fetish isnt my thing I find that the patterns made on her skin by both the peircing and the indentations by the points of the needles along with the serpentine path are what makes this so appealing to me. I would never before have considered this sort of thing art but I find this photo to be rather sublime.

Yes, it is beautiful and I have seen some very nice designs. Keep in mind that most of the time when play piercing/needle play is done there are no pictures taken and it's even more rare for it to be done as part of a professional photoshoot. Most such pictures are just plain old cell phone (or point and shoot camera) photos taken at a fetish club/dungeon/play party. Also, this is the same model that did the needle harp in case you were wondering.

But yes, the "double stick" is often quite a bit more intense/painful than two separate needles especially at first but that often results in an even bigger and more intense endorphin high (and while I don't know about karamilk both Mitsu and myself like the sting/pain of the piercings themselves even before those lovely endorphins kick in). But yes, there is a good reason she was giggling like crazy through most of it :)
